Message from the Principal

GovDelivery2 weeks 6 days ago

Greetings Saxons,

We begin this week’s message with a word of gratitude to our military veterans. On behalf of our Langley community, I thank you for your service. The service and sacrifices of you and your families are so deeply appreciated.  

When it comes to Saxon Country, the words of Louis Armstrong ring true, “What a Wonderful World”. Our kids continue to demonstrate why our school community is known for excellence. Our student body is a class act all around!


Congratulations to Langley Freshmen Football on their perfect season.


Langley Varsity Football- Liberty District Champions and McLean Rotary Cup winners! Kudos to this amazing team! Congratulations to Head Coach Dave Murray on being selected Liberty District Football Coach of the Year!

A huge shout out to the following players on earning the distinction Liberty District Football First Team Players:

QB- Brendan Mansinne, OL- Jacob Steele, WR-Dustin Mosleh, K- Nick Guagliano, DE- Blake Thompson,
LB- Luke Watson, LB - Remhi Chaudhry, DB- Dustin Mosleh, Offensive All Purpose- Daren Mosleh, PR- Dustin Mosleh


Kudos to Chloe Hokenson and Leni Stanton-Parker who were named First Team All Region!

Hats off to Langley’s Model UN team for their outstanding showing at William & Mary’s Model UN High School Competition. Team members earned eleven 5 place titles. Way to go, Team.

As you can see, great things are happening and we’re not finished yet! We wish our football team the best of luck tonight in their first round region playoff game against Yorktown. Kickoff will be at 7:00 p.m. at Langley. We’re sending positive vibes to Girls’ Cross Country as they compete in VHSL state competition on Saturday beginning at 10:30 a.m. at Oatlands. Finally, good luck to our volleyball team as they travel to take on Alexandria City High School in state playoffs on Saturday evening at 7:00 p.m.  

As we are settling into the second quarter of the year, I want to ensure everyone is aware of an incredible support provided by the school division. Tutor.com is available to all FCPS students 24/7. Real time assistance is available in 200+ subjects through the application. Students may access the resource through their Schoology accounts.

As the weather has turned colder, we are seeing an uptick in illness. It is noted, and so appreciated, how academically focused our students are. Teachers and staff are keenly aware of the stress students feel when they are absent from school. However, the health of everyone must be of paramount concern within our school community. If your student is ill, please do not send them to school. A student is experiencing illness isn’t fully available to tend to learning and they are compromising the health of others in the building. Teachers and staff will work with students to get them caught up when they return to school. Thank you for  your understanding and partnership in addressing this concern.

May this weekend bring blessings and great luck to all in Saxon Country!

Fondly,

Greetings Saxons,

On this Halloween weekend, there are no tricks, only treats in Saxon Country. Our students continue to shine in competition on the courts, fields and stage. Cheers to our amazing kids!!!

Congratulations to our performing arts students. The fall season was kicked off by Saxon Stage with the theatre production The Man Who Came to Dinner. Orchestra, choir and band gave amazing performances during their respective concerts. Here’s a link to the orchestra concert for your listening pleasure.


Congratulations to Langley Cheer which took top honors in the Liberty District. We also celebrate Morgan Kim who earned Cheerleader of the Year and Jessica Miller who was recognized as District Coach of the Year! Alexia Ghesi and Avery Jones were selected First Team for Liberty District.


Saxon Volleyball- Liberty District Champions! 12-0 in district competition! Congratulations to Liberty District Player of the Year Chloe Hokenson, Erica Maebius Defensive Specialist and District First Team recipients Leni Stanton Parker and Ana Toumazatous.

 
Saxon Girls’ Cross Country- Liberty District Champs!!


Field Hockey First Team District | McKenna McConnell - Midfield and Kate Morley - Defense


Our amazing yearbook staff has been awarded a VHSA Trophy Class ranking which is the highest ranking bestowed by the organization.


Congratulations to our Volleyball seniors!


Congratulations to the seniors participating in cheerleading, dance, football, madrigals, band and color guard!

 
Langley’s Model United Nations team competed in the University of Virginia’s Model UN competition for high school students last weekend. Facing tough competition, our team won the Best Large Team Delegation award!


The newly formed Langley Boys Volleyball club team is ranked #1 in their division with a 9-1 record. We wish them well in the playoffs!

As previously shared by Superintendent Dr. Michelle Reid through email, a new division strategic plan will be created this school year. Students will have an opportunity to participate in its creation. Students will be asked to complete a survey providing feedback on their school experience. This feedback will be used to help inform

FCPS leadership as they work on planning for the future of the school system. Parents are invited to view the survey questions to get more information.

As we close our quarter 1, I thank each of you for your ongoing support of our school. It really does take a village to raise our children. It is truly a blessing to work alongside each of you as we partner to ensure the needs of each of our kids are met. I wish each of you a treat filled Halloween weekend!

Fondly,

Did You Know...

According to Harvard Health Publishing, Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that helps regulate sleep and appetite, mediate moods, and inhibit pain. Since about 95% of your serotonin is produced in your gastrointestinal tract, and your gastrointestinal tract is lined with a hundred million nerve cells, or neurons, it makes sense that the inner workings of your digestive system don’t just help you digest food, but also guide your emotions. Here is the full article “Nutritional psychiatry: Your brain on food.”

Vision and Hearing Screening for all 10th Graders 

Our mandatory Vision and Hearing screening will be held on October 17th & 18th during P.E. classes for all 10th graders.

Saxon Stage 

Saxon Stage presents The Man Who Came To Dinner, a hilarious comedy by Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman, starting Thurs, Oct 13 at 7 pm.

Synopsis: Sheridan Whiteside —critic, lecturer, wit, radio orator, an intimate friend of the great and near great— having dined at the home of the Stanleys, slips on their doorstep and breaks his hip. The result is a tumultuous six weeks of confinement. Possibility: "Christmas may be postponed this year." So runs the lead article in the Christmas 1939 issue of Time Magazine. Whiteside turns the Stanley household upside down, forcing everyone in town to cater to his egotistical demands.

Meanwhile, his essential secretary has given her notice after falling in love with a local reporter and Whiteside must engage every weapon in his considerable arsenal of guile and manipulation to keep her in his employ—including blackmail, deceit, and the intervention of the fading actress Lorraine Sheldon and the elegant British wit of playwright Beverly Carlton. A three-ring circus of machinations and celebrity appearances ensues.

Show times: Thurs, Oct 13 / Fri, Oct 14 / Sat, Oct 15 at 7 pm and Sun, Oct 16 at 2:30 pm. Click here for the flyer and scan the QR code to purchase tickets.

Greetings Saxons,

It has been an amazing week in Saxon Country! Our homecoming football game against Oakton proved to be a nail biter with our team winning with a touchdown made in the final minute of the game.  Congratulations to our outstanding team! The excitement continued with the homecoming dance held on Saturday. Over 1300 tickets were sold for the big event. Students had a wonderful time; it was great to see them dressed to impressed for the occasion.

As you are aware, our Back to School Night event was held on Wednesday evening. What a delight to host this event in person for the first time since 2019. A tremendous thank you to our teachers and staff  for their efforts in making the night a success. If you didn’t have a chance to attend, please visit your student’s teacher’s Schoology site to view course videos.

With almost one month of the school year completed, our students are definitely in the groove of school. As we have found our rhythm, your assistance is needed. To minimize disruption of the school day, food deliveries aren’t allowed during school hours. Also, when students are ill during the school day, they should report to the health room instead of directly calling a parent. This will ensure proper care and provide accurate attendance reporting. Thank you for your assistance.

Thank you for your ongoing partnership and support.

Fondly,

Greetings Saxons,

So, how do you top a four day weekend? By having homecoming week begin the day after Labor Day! We have had a time in Saxon Country this week thanks to our homecoming events. Many of our students participated in the spirit week. It was great to see many dressed to match the day’s theme. The school week concluded with a pep rally this morning. Thanks to our leadership students for planning this week’s events!

We look forward to seeing everyone at this evening’s homecoming game. We wish our football team the best of luck as they take on the Oakton Cougars. Our homecoming festivities will conclude tomorrow evening with the dance from 8:00 p.m.-10:30 p.m.

Highlights from today’s pep rally…


Our band shared a portion of their half time show!


Cheerleaders showed their Saxon spirit with a great routine!


The dance team’s moves were on point!


There’s nothing like tug of war. Congratulations to the Science and Math departments who reigned supreme over the English and Social Studies departments.


Saxon spirit all the way! 

I wish each of you a phenomenal weekend.

Fondly,

Newsletters:

As we begin the 2022-23 school year, public schools nationwide face a growing student wellness crisis. Our students' wellness challenges impact their ability to perform at their best in the classroom and may lead to other destructive behaviors. 

In Northern Virginia, the opioid epidemic continues to impact communities including young adults, and sometimes school-age children. Tragically, this can lead to devastating outcomes. There are three things you can do now, to support student wellness and increase understanding of the dangers of opioids and fentanyl:

  • Talk with children and loved ones in your life about the dangers of drug use, especially opioids. For more information, tips on how to recognize and prevent substance abuse, and available support services, watch this webinar.
  • Safely store and dispose of medications to prevent drug misuse.
  • Sign up for a Virtual REVIVE! training class to learn how to recognize the signs and symptoms of opioid overdose and administer naloxone nasal spray to reverse an opioid overdose.

Learn more about the dangers of opioids and available resources on our website. Visit the Student Safety and Wellness webpage for more information about a variety of topics related to student wellbeing. 

Community Conversations with Dr. Reid

Dr. Michelle Reid is hosting Community Conversations across the division to get to know our communities. Dr. Reid will be at Langley on Wednesday, October 26 from 6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. For additional information click here.
